Injection Molding Materials

ABS

Provides favourable mechanical properties such as impact resistance, toughness, and rigidity.

Process :

PP

Polypropylene (PP) is a thermoplastic “addition polymer” made from the combination of propylene monomers. Good impact resistance, high toughness, weather resistant.

Process : SLA, Polyjet
Tolerance:
±0.15 - ±0.20mm

Nylon

Excellent thermoplastic with good mechanical properties and high chemical and abrasion resistance.

Process:

PET

High impact resistance, warpage resistance, low shrinkage rate and high head deflection temperature. PET, which stands for polyethylene terephthalate, is a clear, strong and lightweight plastic belonging to the polyester family. It is typically called "polyester" when used for fibers or fabrics, and "PET" or "PET Resin"

Process : FDM 3D printing
Tolerance : ±0.2 - ±0.25mm

Polycarbonate (PC)

PC has high toughness, great impact strength and machinability. PC can also be optically transparent. Heat resistant upto 135°C, highly durable, shatter resistant, transparent

Process: FDM

Injection Molding Surface Finishing Options

Glossy

The mold is smoothed and then polished with a diamond buff, resulting in parts with a mirror-like finish.

Semi Glossy

The mold is smoothed with fine grit sandpaper, resulting in parts with a fine surface finish.

Polished

Buffed so as to provide a clean and polished finish on the part.

Textured

The mold is first smoothed with fine stone powder and then sandblasted, resulting in a textured surface.

As-machined

Tool marks may be visible, as per the machining done

What is Injection Molding

Injection moulding (U.S. spelling: injection molding) is a manufacturing process for producing parts by injecting molten material into a mould, or mold. Injection moulding uses a special-purpose machine that has three parts: the injection unit, the mould and the clamp. Parts to be injection-moulded must be very carefully designed to facilitate the moulding process; the material used for the part, the desired shape and features of the part, the material of the mould, and the properties of the moulding machine must all be taken into account.

Applications of Injection Molding

Injection Molding for Automotive

Many of the parts found on modern automobiles require a broad range of intricately designed features to function correctly. For this reason, many of the leaders of the automotive industry have turned to plastic injection molding to develop, plan, and manufacture the parts they need. Typical injected molded elements include bumpers, dashboards, and smaller pieces, such as cup holders and mirror housings.

Injection Molding for Medical & Pharmaceuticals

As many medical products must be shatter-proof, non-porous, and perfect in shape, plastic injection molding is critical for medical and pharmaceutical production. As a high volume producer, the medical industry can benefit from injection molding's decreased production times and affordable production materials while still achieving high-quality medical-grade products. Medical and pharmaceutical parts created with injection molding can range from pill bottles to x-ray components

Electronics

Although many people see electronic components as a predominately metal piece of machinery that uses electricity to function, enhancing system longevity with corrosion-resistant plastic housings improves overall performance. As you may have guessed, manufacturing housings through the plastic injection molding processes is preferred. The computer mouse you may be using right now, to the television in your living room, likely have some components created using plastic injection molding.

Food & Beverage

Food and beverage industry relies heavily on plastic materials to create product packaging and containers. Since this industry must adhere to strict sanitization and safety regulations, plastic injection molding is an obvious fit to ensure various specifications are achieved, including BPA-free, FDA-certified, non-toxic and GMA-safe regulations. From components as small as bottle caps to the trays used in TV dinners, injection molding provides a one-stop-shop for all the food and beverage industry's packaging and container needs.
